Review: Understanding Sexual Abuse by Tim Hein

Salome Skaff on 14th February 2018

I love the esteem that Tim Hein holds the church in – a place where people teach, model and learn deep truths about life and purpose. Because of this esteem, he holds the church to a high standard when it comes to protecting and ministering to abuse survivors. As such, this book is an invaluable […]

Stronger Together, Weaker Apart

Stephanie Heald on 10th January 2018

The secret of a flourishing publishing business? It was burning a hole in my inbox. It had taken a road trip around the States, a ton of planning, prayer and work to get to this stage, but now I was stuck. I’d never signed a contract for US distribution. I had no idea what to […]

CLC International Book Review: Luminous Dark

Eddie Olliffe on 21st December 2017

Luminous Dark is, perhaps, the best Christian book that I have read this year.  Finding a book that deals with the ‘painful journey of being transformed by the love of God through suffering’ is quite difficult. We live in a Christian culture that looks too much on the side of triumphalism, than at those deep places […]

Book Review: Luminous Dark

Rick Hill on 11th December 2017

In the parable of the wise and foolish builders, we are reminded that storms come to the wise as well as the foolish, the faithful as well as the fickle. Christians aren’t immune from storms – they aren’t possibilities but promises. In Luminous Dark, we are drawn into the personal journey of Alain Emerson – […]

CLC International Book Review: Left to Their Own Devices?

Eddie Olliffe on 12th October 2017

‘Left to Their Own Devices?’ is a really good book. I don’t say that very often! It’s also a very sane book! My children are in their 30s. When they were young, the Internet hardly existed and a screen, such as they were, was primarily the television. So this book is such an important title, […]

Book Review: Left to Their Own Devices?

Andy Harding on 21st June 2017

As both a youth worker and a parent I highly recommend this book. For anyone struggling to fully understand what their children are up to for those endless hours on their phone, tablet and computer (or dare I say all three at once?!) – this book is for you! Like many other parents bringing my […]

Parenting teens through exams? Need some wisdom and calm? Katharine Hill, UK Director of Care for the Family, brings some timely advice.

Leadership: The Model is Jesus

on 7th June 2017

Who is your greatest hero? Who do you admire, secretly? If you could choose to be anyone in the world, who would it be? I would love to be Aragon! In my fantasy world, Tolkein’s brooding, tormented hero … is me. I may have less hair, my six pack might be hidden and I can’t […]

Could you live without your smartphone?

Guy Brandon on 7th June 2017

‘If you want a definition of water, don’t ask a fish’, goes the Chinese proverb. We’re so used to the web and our smartphones being part of our lives that we barely question how they affect us any more. A lot of the time, we use them so instinctively and reflexively that we don’t realise […]
